Alanis Martinez, Copy Editor

Alanis Martinez excitedly returns to the Downey Legend as Co-Copy-Editor, ready to take on her junior year. Despite not considering herself outgoing, Martinez is arguably quite the opposite: friendly and welcoming with a positive attitude. Very appreciative of the people around her, she loves taking photographs to reminisce on the time she spends with others. Although she isn’t sure what college she’d like to attend, she sees herself pursuing a career in education after volunteering at a children’s summer camp two years in a row. 

Most importantly, however, Martinez stresses her goal for this year is to focus on herself. “[I] close my eyes and pretend I’m talking to my younger self,” Martinez states.  “Then, I let them see where I am now and how far I’ve come. I think it’s really humbling and boosting to know everything’s gonna turn out OK.” She says appreciating how she’s grown and not going past her limits is not just important for herself, but for everyone, and enjoys reminding others to reflect back on their own journeys with appreciation.
